PROFILE: 05/29/17 13:30
Spencer is friendly and outgoing towards strangers. He has spent time around toddlers and is relaxed and playful with them. He plays either exuberantly or gently with both adults and children based on how they are playing with him. He lives with his brother-dog (another Pitbull) and spends time at the dog park with other dogs who he is relaxed and playful with. He has never spent time around cats so it’s unknown how he would react. He has never bitten another animal or human.
Spencer isn’t bothered during loud noises such as fireworks. He allows his owner to take away his food bowl and treats and thinks his owner is trying to play when it’s a toy being taken away. He isn’t bothered when pulled off of furniture. He will struggle when restrained from something he wants and will wake up ready to play when awoken from his slumber. He tolerates baths, brushing, and nail trimming. When someone unfamiliar approaches his home or humans he’s friendly.
Spencer is friendly, affectionate, playful, and excitable. He has a medium activity level and when ready to play enjoys fetch with balls, chewing on bones, and tugging on rope. When his owner is home, he sits in his favorite spot on his bed in the corner of the room by the window. He’s kept mostly indoors and sleeps on his owner’s bed. He is very house-trained and only goes potty outside on the cement or dirt. He will go through the garbage when left home alone for too long and is crate-trained. He knows sit, come, and stay. For exercise, Spencer goes to the dog park and enjoys both slow and brisk walks on-leash where he will sometimes pull lightly. He eats Wellness dry food, 1 and a half cups, twice a day. He loves all types of food.
On intake, Spencer had a waggy tail and a loose body. He allowed all handling.

Upon intake, Spencer had a wagging tail and loose body.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 5/29/17
During his initial medical exam, Spencer was social and active.
Spencer’s previous owner described him as having a medium level of activity. He is a young, enthusiastic, social dog who will need daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. We recommend long-lasting chews, food puzzles, and hide-and-seek games, in additional to physical exercise, to positively direct his energy and enthusiasm.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
